NearbyIt's just half a mile from Ockeridge Rural Retreats to the local fisheries (07398 176362; you can walk there easily) so bring your tackle if you're a keen angler. Witely Court (0370 333 1181), a vast, ruined Victorian mansion and once of the great country houses of England, is 2 miles away. A devastating fire in 1937 left it in the state you find today – undoubtedly one of the country’s most spectacular ruins and a real spectacle in its own right. It's 6 miles, meanwhile, to Worcester city centre, well known for its magnificent cathedral (01905 732900) and independent shops. National Trust-owned Greyfriars' House and Garden (01905 23571) is well worth a visit, as is the Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum (01905 25371) on rainy days. The small Tudor House Museum (01905 612309) is also fantastic. When the sun is shining, though, nothing bears getting outdoors and exploring the Malvern Hills. The designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just under 10 miles away and is renowned for mountain biking, along with miles of footpaths and hiking trails. For a more sedate way to take in the Worcestershire scenery, try The Severn Valley Railway (01299 401776), 8 miles away.
Food & DrinkThe nearest pub is the Holt Fleet (01905 620286), 2½ miles away on the edge of the River severn. The Crown (01905 640408) in Hallow (5 miles), is a strikingly modern, gastro pub affair and can be walked to via country lanes allowing you to really explore the area.

Leave the M5 Motorway at Junction 6. Take the A449 exit on the roundabout onto a dual carriageway, signposted to Kidderminster. At the first roundabout, take the third exit, still following the A449 to Kidderminster. Follow the carriageway for around 2 miles, and then take the left hand slip road to Ombersley. Go through Ombersley and, at the roundabout, turn left. Follow the road for 2 miles, go over Holt Bridge and at the mini roundabout go straight on. At the end of the road you will see the Red Lion pub in front of you, turn right onto the A443 sign posted to Tenbury. Follow the road for around ½-mile, then turn left onto Ockeridge Lane. Follow the road for 1½ miles and, after you pass the first turing on your right into Well Lane, Ockeridge Rural Retreats' gated entrance is on your right hand side. The nearest railway stations are quite a distance away in Droitwich Spa (8 miles; 0845 748 4950) and in Worcester at Foregate Street (10 miles; 0845 748 4950). Taxis are available from both.
